Zoolander Returns!

The internet virtually exploded when male actors Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprised their roles as Derek Zoolander and Hansel from the 2001 hit “Zoolander,” by closing the Valentino show, wearing custom pieces by the Italian house.

Givenchy makes facial piercings cool

Riccardo Tisci didn’t want to pass under the radar so he flew high enchanting us covering the models with extravagant facial piercings, heating up social media. Tisci is not new to this style and opted for it several times – but now it embodies an all new message, once rebellious and punk, now they are an irresistible pop and a fashion accessory that shines a cool touch. The Blonde Salad
